AT A GLANCE
Crustaceans can be tricky creatures to prepare and cook at home, but we show you how to enjoy a fantastically fresh lobster with a clear conscience.
|01||Cook lobster in a large saucepan of heavily salted boiling water until cooked through (20-25 minutes). Drain and set aside until cool. Using your hands, twist the body and head in opposite directions to separate.|
|02||Using sharp kitchen scissors or a heavy, sharp knife, cut along either side of the underside of the tail, where the shell is soft.|
|03||Gently manoeuvre the tail meat until it loosens, then remove from the shell. Set shell and tail meat aside separately.|
|04||Remove all the legs at the joints.|
|05||Remove meat from legs with a skewer or crab pick. Set meat and shell aside separately.|
|06||Separate the top and undersides of the head, then use a spoon to remove ‘mustard’.|
